The Deep RiverRock Belfast City Half Marathon will once again facilitate official pacers on race day after successfully introducing them in 2010 (for our full marathon event).

 

**2018 HALF MARATHON PACERS**

Working closely with governing body Athletics Northern Ireland, the organisers have sourced timing pacers for 1 hour 30 minutes, 1 hour 45 minutes, 2 hours and 2 hours 15 minutes.   Full details of our pacers can be found in the table below.

General secretary of Athletics Northern Ireland and Board Member of the Belfast City Marathon Ltd, John Allen said;

"Last year's pacer scheme proved very popular. We are always keen to do what we can do to improve the experience of runners in the race and the pacer scheme not only helps runners achieve their target but also adds to the camaraderie of the day."

 

We're delighted to announce the following experienced Pacing team will be guiding you to the finish line on 23rd September 2018!
